The greatest receiver of all time, at least in Randy Moss' mind, didn't fare well in the postgame TV analysis in San Francisco.
Bill Romanowski, the former NFL linebacker who played on four Super Bowl winners during his 16-year career, went off on Moss during a postgame analysis on Comcast Sports Network/Bay Area. His wrath was directed mostly toward a second quarter play when Ed Reed intercepted a pass that was headed high and wide toward Moss. Dwight Clark, the legendary San Francisco wide receiver, also joined in.
Money quote No. 1 from Romanowski: "What happened is Randy Moss alligator armed it, he didn't go up for the ball! He said he was the best receiver in the DAMN world -- ok, you hear me? Oh, God! That's what pisses me off! You're playing in the Super Bowl, guys!"
Money quote No. 2 from Clark: "He didn't alligator-arm it. He didn't even reach out for it!"
Money quote No. 3, from Romanowski: "One thing you just can not have in a Super Bowl is lack of effort."
Moss? Lack of effort? Who knew?
Here's the video:
Moss finished the game with two catches for 41 yards, including a 32-yard gain the fourth quarter.
And Romanowski? He got a blog whipping over his temper from Jeff Everette of Rant Sports, a rant that reads a little bit like, well, a Romanowski rant.
